does anyone happen to have suggestions for a couple of good bars in the adams morgan vicinity? tommy's 24th birthday is this weekend, and we plan on "painting the town with his drunken drool," as jess said.

i've actually known tommy in some capacity since we were 18. we both lived in webb dorm our first year at uva, and though i recognized him around grounds when i saw him, we never properly met each other. (the fact that his suite was voted "most anti-social" might have had something to do with it. that, and warcraft.)

the first time we were formally introduced was at some 80s-themed frat party that same year. i was there with naomi and becca, i think, and tommy was there with matt and billy, who happened to be friends of na's and becca's. all three of the boys were fairly drunk and, for some reason, matt and billy became completely obnoxious and tried to foist tommy on me. they did the worst thing they could have done to two uncoordinated people like us: they tried to make us dance together.

when i refused for the billionth time, matt and billy christened me a snob and eventually left us alone. and from that time on, tommy was known to me and my friends as "scary dancer boy," even though he hadn't really done anything to deserve that title. nevertheless, scary dancer boy he was. and i would cross to the other side of the street when i saw him coming.

of course, things changed in october 2000. anyway, i guess i'm trying to say: happy birthday, boyfriend!



it was starcraft

thank you

I still don't think it was him. do you remember that night, tommy?

Honestly, no. I dimly recall Matt trying to get me to dance one nondescript night, but this could just have been his standard operating procedure when drunk. If it was me, I don't think I actually saw Catherine, although maybe she got a glimpse of me.

it was definitely him! i remember it well. mostly because i was pissed that matt called me a snob.

for those who don't know, i once...kicked tommy in the balls. yeah. there was a reason, though. his teammate broke the elbow rule in beer pong. and punishment had to be doled out.

i swear i'm not crazy.

Bars in the Adams Morgan vicinity:

Madam's Organ is worth a visit.

And Triste across the street for their Long Island Iced Teas.

Columbia Station down the street for live jazz/funk.

Pharmacy Bar for the strange atmosphere.
